Newton County was first established in 1821 and was formed from the Land Lotteries of 1805, 1807, 1820, and 1821. The Clerk of Superior Court’s office houses all the real estate records dating back to 1821. These records are available to the public with some books remaining in storage and not easily accessible. The indexes to the records are hand written from 1821-1982. In 1983 the Real Estate Indexes were made digital and are available for view on computer printouts as well as on computer search terminals within the Clerk’s office.
In 1993 the Georgia Superior Court Clerks’ Cooperative Authority (GSCCCA) was established with the legislated mandate of implementing and administering a statewide central index for UCC filings. The Clerks’ Authority website now has a statewide search for UCCs, Deeds, Liens, Plats, and Notaries.
